it all started with an oil change
a simple oil change? i've only gotten to ride my bike for about a week since i've owned it because of the weather. the previous owner told me he had about 600 miles on the oil in the bike, he also told me he put in new spark plugs, air filters,fork seals and did the flapper and pair mods.
after riding it for a week i noticed the fork seals starting to leak, that made me check the spark plugs and air filters, they were old and havent been changed in a while. i called the local honda shop and ordered spark plugs, air/oil filters and fork seals/bushings. while i was waiting i researched the pair and flapper mods, the flapper was done but the pair wasnt, thats when i saw dnsducks selling pair plates, i ordered a set. after a couple days everything came in and i did the oil change, plugs and air filters.
while the bike was apart, i decided to order new tires (pilot power 2cts). i completed the pair mod (pair plates look great - thanks dnsducks) and installed the new tires, while i had the front wheel off i decided to change the fork seals, after taking the forks off i noticed the steering head bearings were bad, i ordered new "all balls" bearings off ebay (the sent the wrong bearings and it took a week to get the right ones). i installed the fork seals last week and did the steering head bearings last night. tonight i installed the forks and tomorrow night i hope to get the front end finished,there has been alot of little things that have needed attention like the wire harness needs to be cleaned up and rerouted. i also ordered a hugger and new windscreen, i noticed the brakes will need to be replaced soon. the bike has been apart for almost a month now, luckily for me the weather has been horrible. this is why sometimes it's a pain buying used bikes, at least i will know whats been done and when it's been done - heres a couple pics from last night
